Summary
Wood used in industrial settings, and in some arid parts of the United States, may be subjected to very low relative humidity (RH). Analytical models available for predicting the effect of moisture content (MC) on the properties of solid-sawn lumber imply significant strength loss at very low MC...

Summary
Structural composite lumber (SCL) products were introduced into the construction practice several decades ago. Their apparent advantages over traditional lumber did not generate copious research interests. However, increasing demands for structural materials coupled with the decreasing quality and quantity of raw materials...
